Discover Marni‘s Resort 2019 womenswear collection, exploring decadence and romanticism, playing with deconstruction and proportions.
Gentle subversion. Looking at reality through a filter, in pursuit of extreme beauty. Decadence and romanticism as tools to establish rebellious rules. The irresistible charm of elegance that transcends classic canons, glorifying them. The inexorable playfulness of deconstruction. The emotion of soft, delicate pastels. A compulsive harmony. Moving away from traditional codes, looking for new proportions. Archetypes are gently distorted: inflated, sliced, draped, patched together. The languid dress, the bon ton coat, the demure jacket and the voluminous skirt, the little cardigan, the perfecto, the robe and the polo: elements that belong to the collective memory, brought on unfamiliar ground. Overblown balloon shapes. Knife pleats and graphic patches. Giant sequins drawing borders or sparkling allover.Freedom. The mix ‘n match as cut ‘n paste, of forms, materials and patterns. Languid meets sturdy as sophisticated toys with technical. Silk, nylon, ostrich leather, mikado, denim, crêpe de chine. An harmonious clash of checks, pied de poule, abstract flowers, stripes and photoprints. The geometric and the soft that mingle and marge. – from Marni
